I tried for 8 years for 1st baby, bt said i want ovulating, took clomid for 3 months, nothing happened. Very depressed, desperate as all friends and siblings all starting families around me, felt very left out. Went for loads of other tests, all came back normal, after 8 years it just happened. 2 yrs for baby number 2, 3 yrs for baby 3 and baby 4 just happene made womb lean over..with baby 3, i went to a chiropractor, she told me of your back of misaligned, you cut of the proper flow of blood so you don't get the correct nutrients to the growing embryo Sooooo it never supports a pregnance, so you just end up having a period and never knew your body tried to be preg, Amy way, my sacrium.and pubic bone were pulling in the oposite direction she put it right on day 14 of my cycle, we did the business, and hey presto, i was preg. Try it, i really hope it works for you, i totally understand what you must be going through.

Is that an 8 month wait for an Hsg test? That's a really long time. My experience and what I have read on here suggests more like 2 months and then part of the issue is synching up with your period.

You shouldn't be prescribed clomid anyway before the hsg test. Clomid is meant to make you ovulate but there is no point if you have a tube blocked. You can only take clomid a limited number of times in a lifetime no point in 'wasting' a go if your tubes aren't checked.

On the 'alternative therapies' my personal view is that you should save your money for clinically proven treatment. If you have some spare cash then ask about paying for an AMH test. This will give you an indication as to what your ovarian reserves are. The nhs will organise this test for you privately. i paid £50 and £70.

I do sympathise. It's hard being patient when you've waited so long.
